Some people thought photo booths were a “trend” and that they would come and go. Over the years, photo booths are in popular demand and are a MUST HAVE at any event, party, celebration, and gathering, especially here in New York City and the surrounding areas! We’ve got some great tips on ensuring the best photo booth experience, for any sort of event you may be planning:
Research, Research, Research
We can’t stress this enough! Don’t just go with the cheapest rental company you find, make sure you make a quick check of their profile, their Unique Selling Point and type of photo booths for rent. Quick Tip: Look out for their social media pages, and see reviews and any posts and pictures before making a decision.
It’s true, you get what you pay for. There are many photo booth companies that will offer really cheap fees and quotation to entice you, but be sure you check about what you’re really investing in! More often than not, these companies will get you with add-ons like “premium backdrop” or “custom templates.” With Royal Photo Booth, these are already included in the rental! Unss you need us to make a backdrop from scratch, custom step and repeat or if it’s one of those fancy flower backdrops, we will never charge you for a backdrop! Check on the camera type, the photo booth set up and the printing quality. Don’t leave anything out! Most events are between 3 to 5 hours, so double check if your event might run a little longer, and what the additional charges are like.
Don’t Skimp On Quality!
Photo printouts will never get old, and is such an immediate reminder of a great event! However, the wrong type of lighting and paper quality can hinder the success of your event. When meeting with the photo booth companies, ask to see samples of their printouts to make sure it isn’t grainy or pixelated. Check about their cameras, and their custom software so that you get the very best!
We get lots of last minute bookings and sometimes even turn away clients because they wait until the last minute to book our photo booth. It gets really busy during peak event season (March onwards), so make sure you get to work immediately after locking down your event date! A lead time between 3 to 6 months is comfortable enough so you’ll be put in the schedule. We also encourage you to double confirm if you’re going to need for the photo booth to run longer than the average time, so the photo booth company has lead time to lock the hours for you!
Don’t forget about photo booth attendants helping out at the photo booth! Ensure your appointed company has at least one attendant that are also able on-site technicians just in case there’s a hiccup. You want a photo booth company that will foresee all the potential complications, so that you’ll have a smooth event!
